Earlier, I'd brought Mickey a dish of ice cubes to help keep him cool. Surprisingly, the location of his cage under the kitchen table is quite cool compared to the rest of the room, but not as cool as a fur-bearing critter would truly enjoy. Mickey responded as he always does:
FLING! went the little plastic tub (which is why it IS a plastic tub--trust me, I learned the hard way).
FLING! went the first ice cube, followed by many more FLING!s as he tossed each and every cube about the cage. (My fridge makes semi-circular ice cubes, so it was easy for him to pick them up.)
He was tossing them pretty far, too; good thing the cage door was closed.
Once he had tossed each cube to his satisfaction (and tossed the plastic tub a few more times for good measure), he hopped into his haybox and gave me a look that said,
"Well, that was amusing for a moment. Can you clean this up now?"
I put the cubes into his empty greens dish; that way, he can toss them again if he so desires, or if not, I'll empty out the water when I feed him later. Next time I give him cubes, I'll have to remember to bring my camera as well.
Here's the last pics of the trinket boxes I bought on eBay around Easter:
See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil--
not exactly the bunny way, but very cute.
Three bunnies, one carrot?
Oh, there will be some evil spoken now for sure.
This bunny is looking quite sweet and innocent
(which means he's definitely up to no good)
And here's his carrot
(which he'd better keep hidden from the "not-evil" three)
That's the last of the new stuff--next time, I'll be showing some of the stuff I already have.
